Staff were pretty useless, food wasn’t great and the menu is pretty poor as it doesn’t tell you what’s in most dishes. I had the wrong dish served to me and in general it was a poor meal and a bad experience. Won’t be visiting there again.

* Price: we had one whole fish, 2 lb local dungeon crab, 5 large shrimps, 2 lb of razor clams, seafood noodles, drinks for $200 usd feeding 5 hungry adults! 4 star.
- Ambiance: open air restaurant with ocean view, very clean and modern decor. 4+ star.
- Location: across My Khe beach. Nice view of the ocean. 5 star.
- Meal: delicious and fresh! You pick out seafood from their tank according to your budget. Fish, clams, crabs are still swimming before being cooked. Everything is cooked perfectly.
- serivce: very good. However, many servers do not speak English... 4 star.

We came here for lunch before our flight to Saigon. It was recommended by a local friend. They have a large selection of fresh seafood. The host spoke Wnglish fluently and was honest to advise us of our selections as well as recommendation.
We picked mostly local seafood (local.dungoen crab, clams and fish).
Razor clams were cooked with lemongrass, herbs and peppers which were so delicious. I could literally lick the plate. The local.dungoen crab was huge and cooked with garlic, butter, soy sauce and pepper. The server cracked the crab for us. I would definitely recommend this choice..the crab is so juicy and meaty... even better than king crab. Their local shrimps were like lobster size, grilled and served with salt, pepper and lime. The local fish called "cá chim" which is butter fish, pan fried with garlic and pepper, served with "nuoc chấm" or fish sauce. The fish was cooked perfectly, moist and buttery!

It was our best meal during our trip to Vietnam!

Lots of varieties of seafood here, nice environment but be careful what you ordered . As the seafood may not be local as they imported that cost you a hole in your pocket. Even the mantis shrimp which is a local coat you 2.6m Dong per kg! So please check and Ensure you know the price. Ordered the mud crab cooked in chili sauce, steamed cockle which is over cooked. Steamed Garoupa fish - way too hard to chew due to over cooked. steamed live prawn is not too bad, bamboo clamps is overcooked as the meat is hard, the steamed big clam is great with peanut toppings is unique. The local oyster can skip as it doesn’t taste as sweet. The service is ok but not so attentive. You can find a cheaper place in Danang !

Cua Dò is a great restaurant just opposite the beach.
They have fresh seafood in large tanks to the side of the restaurant. This is also one of the largest selections of seafood in Da Nang.
You choose your seafood to eat. This is also driven by weight and price. Therefore at the time of choosing you can set your price range budget.
After your seafood is chosen, you are then asked how you would like it to be cooked and with what side dishes accompanying.
It is a great way to eat and we had clams with onions, garlic, and wine. Followed by a 1 kilo lobster that was broken for us at the table, so we could easily eat with chopsticks and break into the legs.
The staff and service is very professional.
Get to the restaurant early as it is very popular and fills very quickly.
